A company called StewartSoft is launching a social network and mobile application for iPhone/iPod Touch for diners across the U.S. – twiddish. The service (and the accompanying mobile app) is made to allow people to discover the best and worst restaurant dishes through user-generated photograph-based dish reviews. Basically, it’s a Twitter-like micro-blogging service with images (Twitpic).
Each review contains a photograph of the dish, as taken by the disher as the food is served, along with a rating based a number of criteria (flavor, aroma, portion size, presentation and value) and comments. You can search for restaurant by name and location (nearby feature), and discover the so called signature dishes for every restaurant along the way.
As expected, integration with existing social networks like Twitter and Facebook is on board, allowing you to share favorite dishes with your friends.
In addition to the iPhone/iPod Touch client that is already available, the company is also planning to release the BlackBerry application during the spring. Android and webOS will probably follow soon afterwards….
